Green Party of California Honors Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.


SAN FRANCISCO (January 17, 2005) - The Green Party of California today - on Martin Luther King Jr. Day - praised the slain civil rights leader and honored his memory by calling for a renewal of his pledge of non-violence.
    Elected Green Party officials, members of the GPCA, and members of local Green Parties throughout
California joined many of the events honoring Dr. King.
    "If the Rev. King's life not been shortened by an assassin's bullet in 1968, he would no doubt be opposed to the violence and the unending war in Iraq today as he was opposed to the Vietnam War 40 years ago," said Craig Peterson, a military veteran and member of the GPCA Coordinating Council.
   "As a progressive political party that has opposed the continuing of the
Iraq war, we call upon all political parties and all Americans to honor Rev. King and his lifelong message of nonviolence and peace, and to end the Iraq war now, " added Tom Bolema, co-chair of the GPCA Media Standing Committee.
